I was thrilled that my pastel painting 'Nocturne on the Front Range' placed Third in the Capture the County Show this weekend. This pastel is 24 x 36 and is framed with museum glass...really was beautifully framed by Mike Otteman of Loveland. I took the reference photo from my car as I was just zipping through Loveland from Longmont one evening...the sunset was just beautiful and I loved the snow fields in the front.

This is one of my favorite paintings...called Winter on the Big Thompson. I have to crawl over tons of snow and when I got exactly right for the photo, my camera batteries were dead! So, I went all the way back to my car, stepping in my former footprints which were about 18" deep. I was so thrilled that I actually had two batteries in my van...and got the pictures! I have done two award winning paintings from this snowfall...what a beautiful day and a beautiful river, runs right through Loveland.
